We here at First Presbyterian Church of La Grange, Texas want to thank you for dropping in to our website. If you are a “frequent flyer” to this page, we hope you will let us know if anything is incorrect or out-of-date. If this is your first time to check us out, we hope that you will go to the various menus and learn more about our mission opportunities, our people, and our programs. My wife Pam and I came to La Grange to retire, but the spiritual energy and people dynamic here drew me out of retirement to be the pastor of this wonderful church!
So look closely, I think you just might find just the place where God wants you to be …
Celebrate the Lenten Season
Maundy Thursday is the Christian holy day, falling on the Thursday before Easter. It commemorates the Maundy and Last Supper of Jesus Christ with the Apostles as described in the Bible. It is the fifth day of Holy Week, and is followed by Good Friday.
The liturgy held on the evening of Maundy Thursday initiates the Easter Triduum, the period which commemorates the passion, death, and resurrection of Christ; this period includes Good Friday, Holy Saturday, and ends on the evening of Easter. The service of worship is normally celebrated in the evening, when Friday begins according to Jewish tradition, as the Last Supper was held on feast of Passover.
